Episode XX: Writers, Blocked- Mental Illness, Epilepsy, & Creativity

“I often feel like I’m completely wasting my life by trying to be creative.”
—-
What causes writer’s block? And on that note, what causes creativity? The Multiversity Project set out to do an episode on writer’s block, the creative impulse to write, writing’s relationships to bipolar disorder, depression, and temporal lobe epilepsy, and possible solutions to block- psychological, psychiatric, and otherwise.

Through that exploration, we came out with a very different story- one of personal blocks, emotional battles, and the struggle to create.

Is it possible to be a great artist and mentally well at the same time?

Inspired by “The Midnight Disease” by Alice Weaver Flaherty.
